If you’ve been living with the embarrassment of trying to conceal a missing tooth, you don’t have to keep it to yourself. Many adults are missing teeth, and it’s not only because of poor oral hygiene.
No matter the reason for tooth loss, Dr. Vernon Sheen, a skilled and respected dentist in Annapolis, MD can help you restore your confidence with dental implants, the premier treatment recommended by thousands of dentists to replace missing teeth.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Dental implants replace missing teeth from the roots up. A titanium or zirconium implant screw is surgically inserted into the jawbone through your gums and replaces the tooth’s root. Then, an artificial tooth — a crown — is mounted on top of the implant, restoring the functioning of the tooth while also blending in with your existing teeth. Once your jaw has healed from the implant surgery, you can use your new implant to bite and chew just like the rest of your natural teeth.
How Can Dental Implants Help Restore My Confidence?
Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants are placed in your mouth individually and directly into the jawbone. Because of this you will brush and floss them just like your natural teeth, without any need to ever remove them. And unlike with dentures, you will never need to bother with messy adhesives to keep them in and or suffer the embarrassment of them slipping or falling out while you talk or eat. In fact, it’s likely that people that you meet will not even know you have implants unless you tell them.
Implants can help you be confident in your oral health as well. When a permanent tooth is lost, the jawbone can actually deteriorate, changing shape and causing harm to the structure of your mouth and stability of your bite. Dental implants replace the root from the missing tooth, preserving the shape of your mouth and making sure your teeth remain securely in place.
